As I continue my programming learning journey through Free Code Camp, I’m advancing (slowly) through their excellent front end development project list. The most challenging one so far has been to create a pomodoro timer by reverse engineering a reference. This was a challenge I can tell you!
I definitely feel like I’m learning. If nothing else, my grit has advanced by a factor of 10. I’m becoming more and more able to work through advanced code like jQuery plugins to extract the information I need, discover and implement solutions from documentation, experiment in small chunks (JSFiddle is my new best friend), and even ask good questions on Stack Overflow. While I’m still very much a beginner, I’m proud of my progress and I’m very proud of this project.
